by Darrin Griffiths & James Ryan

This book features case studies from teachers, leaders and educational professors on inclusion in schools. Using a conception of inclusion that acknowledges issues of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, religion and ability, this book provides readers with a useful blend of theory and practice. Each case is situated in a school setting and offers readers opportunities to learn about the complexities and challenges associated with issues of exclusion and to develop practices that support inclusion.

Reviews for Case Studies for Inclusive Educators and Leaders

I appreciate the pedagogical aspiration of this book: highlighting the dilemmas of inclusive practice, avoiding neat answers and provoking us to form our own conclusions. It brings inclusion out into the open for discussion. It challenges us to enter into debates about what inclusion really means, in practice not just in ambition. It is an unsettling book, without resolutions, reflecting the realities of lived experience but with a desire to move beyond the experiential to forge principles for inclusive practice.
Professor Trevor Gale, Head, School of Education, The University of Glasgow

Inclusivity, equity, diversity and difference are all flushed out in Case Studies for Inclusive Educators and Leaders, where it is shown that to treat everybody equally does not mean treating them the same. In Case Studies, inclusivity and equity are poetically dealt with where the authors show – with elegance – the vision and the courage required to bring into existence a better and more hopeful, inclusive and equitable future. Case Studies is a required reading for those who dare to educate and lead with their eyes wide-open and their consciousness wide-awake.
